On June 23rd, Industry Kids presented Curl Talk Miami. Curl Talk Miami was held at a space called Tribe.
A Space Called Tribe is a Miami based venue perfect for networking events and conferences.
What was so special about Curl Talk is that it took place in Overtown Miami. Overtown was originally called Colored Town during the Jim Crow era. The community of Overtown is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Miami, Overtown was assigned to black workers who weren’t allowed in other parts of Miami. “The success of Miami’s pioneer tourist industry depended on the labor of black workers from the Bahamas and the Southern states”-urbanp.org. The historic Lyric theater is also in Overtown Miami.
Curl Talk has a mission to inspire young girls around the United States to love their curls,braids,and natural hair.. Curl Talk stands for everything empowerment,confidence, and unity.
Curl Talk Miami was the second Curl Talk presented by Industry Kids. The first Curl Talk presented by Industry Kids took place in New York City.
